General Hospital (GH) spoilers suggest that ABC will make a risky move. They plan to air a new episode on Thanksgiving Day. Fans say this decision is a bad idea. Keep reading to get the latest details.
GH Spoilers: ABC Airs New Episode On Thanksgiving
According to the General Hospital spoilers, ABC is moving forward with its plans to air a new episode on Thanksgiving Day. Fans think it’s a bad idea since most people are spending time with family, friends, and loved ones on the holiday.
Meanwhile, other people will be watching the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade, the Westminister Kennel Club Dog Show, or the countless football games airing that day.
The user Soapsfan1995 posted on the SoapCentral.com Message Boards: “GH will actually air a new episode on a holiday. Kinda surprising for GH to put a new episode on Thanksgiving next week.”
The original poster argued that it was a risky move since the ratings would dip. Most people will be watching the big Detroit Lions game on ABC’s competing network FOX. Most others will be eating dinner with their families.
“The episode itself is the yearly Thanksgiving episode, which shouldn’t have little effect on current storylines as most holiday episodes do,” the fan noted.
General Hospital Spoilers: ABC’s Risky Move
The General Hospital spoilers reveal ABC’s risky move. Fans took to the thread to speculate whether it was a good idea or not. Even though it’s a holiday episode, it shouldn’t have any effect on the ratings and current storyline.
“It’ll just be the same old thing they air every year – Frankly, I’m bored to death with their stupid pizza of turkey fiasco year after year,” one fan wrote.
“I record it anyway. Rarely, do I watch GH live so it shouldn’t affect ratings too much if everyone has it set to record as usual,” another user noted.
The General Hospital spoilers suggest that the show has a history of airing Thanksgiving episodes. Most of them are silly fluff. Fans recalled some of their favorite episodes. One loved the episode from 1989, while another noted the 1996 episode featured the characters having various dreams and nightmares.
The reason why they’re airing a new episode on this day is that they’re still trying to get caught up on episodes. There was also a new episode on Labor Day. There were several preemptions that pushed most of their storylines back.
